Alpharetta Jobs – April 2011

Around the middle of each month I survey the career websites of Alpharetta’s largest employers. I count the number of openings and tally them up here, trending the numbers month to month.

We’ve eclipsed the 700 mark. Since creating this monthly column sixteen months ago, I’ve yet to see this many openings in Alpharetta. Equifax, McKesson, ADP, E-Trade and Red Prarrie all made modest increases in the number of openings posted to career sites. It all added up to 58 new jobs since this time last month.

700 seems like a lot of openings. Perhaps it is little consolation to someone with resumes out there and no call backs. I’d be interested to hear stories from those testing the Alpharetta job market. Leave me a comment or email at lee@rootsinalpharetta.com
